veterans who served the commonwealth army of the philippines on the side of the united states during world war ii. because of a law passed in 1946, their service was not recognized. they were denied access to health care, given only half of the disability and death compensation of other u.s. veterans, so senator inouye changed that. over the years he secured nearly $200 million in compensation for filipino veterans, and he fought to grant filipino veterans the same access to u.s. veterans and v.a. hospitals as are other veterans. senator inouye's strong sense of honor and justice drove him to fight for the recognition of these veteran services. he was fond of saying, quote, "justice is just a matter of continuing education." end quote. and for that reason, he also made sure that injustices endured by u.s. citizens and permanent residents of japanese an ssess century during world war ii were never forgotten. he led passage of the civil liberties act of 188, which acknowledged -- 1988, which acknowledged their forced internment and provided compensation for those surviving detainees. senator

the philippines and charged exorbitant fees to travel to their work sites often misled about where they're going, what that are salaries will be and what their living conditions will be like. frequently their passports are confiscated so they cannot in fact return home, even if they're able to scrape together the money to make that journey. this kind of human trafficking is no less than modern-day slavery, subsidized by our government with taxpayer money. it's reprehensible. but for me, the number-one issue here is the safety of our american troops on these bases. that safety is compromised if our bases are filled with unauthorized, potentially unsafe foreign workers. and that's why i introduced the end trafficking in government contracting act of treft which provides the -- of 2012 which provides the most comprehensive approach taken. it is bipartisan legislation which now is included in the bill which passed the senate last week and i'm hopeful will be retained in conference and signed into law soon, with strong bipartisan support from my colleague, senator portman, of ohio. in a

about the capitol asset on the balance sheet because central banks worked in the philippines. the central bank had a huge negative equity. central banks can go on without necessarily having a positive equity. secondly, they have all sorts of tools that they can theoretically use other than having to unwind their balance sheets. they can increase their ratios, increase the interest rate they pay on excess reserves and so on. they have a lot of control which makes me less worried about the fed balance sheet, not that i approve of what they were doing recently, but i think they can get out of the -- fairly easily. >> i would just add that i think the presence of this massive fed undertaking, you know, and almost a desperate kind of way gets that the underlying problem. this is not a monetary policy issue. this is a fiscal policy issue, and we have an absolute lack of leaders, this threat of that tax policy expiration, all tax policy, much seven -- much of been in place for over a decade. completely congressionally made thing in congress and the president have refused to work on it un
